and will be a great boost to the city of leicester. >> ian swales. ofthis week's announcement the work of the insolvency service at stockton is moving to newcastle -- it is the latest in a long series of similar announcements affecting the valley, including the closure of the hm rc office by the previous government. will the prime minister look to bring extra work to the office since dr. in and move another public-sector agency to the valley? wax i will look very carefully at what my honorable friend says. of course we want to ensure that public-sector jobs are fairly distributed around the country, but we have to be frank and say the real need is a rebalancing with growth in the private sector to make up for the fact that product -- public- sector jobs have declined. that is why the jobs have more than upset -- offset the decline in employment. that is why unemployment is falling around the country. >> the prime minister may not be aware of a poll by the bbc in northern ireland that shows that in all six counties of northern ireland there is now a clear majority in favor of the union.

city. we have got to be more comfortable in talking to people about what works. what is working that other countries are doing. the diversity of the representation in the house will be helpful for that. i think also we have to learn something from how historically brave actions by your predecessors in this caucus played out in the electorate. when were they rewarded? when were they punished? and later rewarded? i cannot tell you how many nights in the white house, every single night before i went to bed, for months and months and months after the 1994 election, i thought about the people who were defeated because they voted for the economic program, because they voted for the assault weapons ban. i knew exactly what happened. i thought a lot about those who survived and why they did. as you look ahead and you decide, what are we going to do about the budget, what are we going to do about having the democrats branded as the party of jobs and innovation for the future? make no mistake about it, the republicans will try very hard not to make it as easy for you to win by-reference.-
